What About Wood?

Wood is so versatile. It can easily lend itself to so many different design identities. For instance, if you want a rustic look, simply use some reclaimed wood or re-purpose a previous project. Many pool owners have used things such as barn doors to create a wood enclosure for their pool pump. Wood is extremely cheap, so you have many options. Want a more modern look? You can easily DIY a pallet box for your pool equipment. No matter what your creativity leads you to, you can be sure that using wood will be both cost effective, aesthetically pleasing, and eco-friendly.

Play around with different textured metals and even different types. One modern home had a variety of different metal panels covering their pool pump . Behind each panel was a light fixture that created a very unique look that lit up the backyard at night.

Totally into Tile?

When it comes to concealing pool equipment such as your pool pump and filter, you can easily incorporate tile. Some home owners have built water features to cover the equipment.
